the stage and repeated, portions of it. >> romney stood on the debate stage, i haven't seen those ads, i wasn't involved in making them, i don't know anything about them. gosh, g. >> but the fact is asked the question at all. the candidates can say i don't know anything about this forever. >> and fear are also clear cases where candidates have come out against ads done by super pacs on their behalf. that happened also in the primaries. so there is a burden. i agree with you there is a burden on the candidate to publicly disavow things or -- said in their support, because they do have a direct affect. i agree with that. >> not to go off on a tangent but when people worry about whether campaigns are getting more negative i always like to cite the accusation against jefferson, which was made that he was a hideous hermaphroditic will character possessing neither the strength of a man nor the gentleness of a woman. this was something that was made in an official opposition newspaper at the time. this is not to say that it would be nice if our campaigns were nice, but pretty hideous sme

the candidates if you look at what they have said on this issue, both obama and romney's plans are vague. if i were moderating the debate that is coming october 3rd, i would spend about half of it asking them what would you do specifically. give us the diagnosis of the plan -- [applause] and tell us what you're really going to do. and part of that question is there has to be a willingness to compromise, and there has to be an innate willingness to do things that are painful for your side. i'm going to stop there, and we'll do questions. one more story. remember years ago the head of simon & schuster after i had published one of my books took me to dinner in new york city at one of these restaurants where you would never want to go where you have to pay.
